    low ferritin and tired in mornings

    Can this be related? I wake up feeling tireder than when I went to bed!

    It's either my low ferritin or I need a sleep study!

    I did that as well. I can recall making my bed and wanting to just get back in it. I could not wait to sleep. I never got too much b/c I have insomnia as well.

    Maybe you are just not getting enough good quality rest, this too can add to the problem. Also, thyroid issues can make you feel this way, and a sleep study may be in order as well. I am not saying it's ~not~ causing your tiresness, but not *everything* is caused by a low ferritin either. If you were anemic right now, along with a low ferritin it may very well be the cause. One way to know is as your ferritin begins to raise, see if your symptoms resolve, if not then check further.

    I have also found that when some people get down and out from a more severe anemia that underlying conditions can appear. This is why when you have symptoms after the ferritin is higher you must check to see if you can find a cause. For me personally, I think that I have developed a chronic fatigue with aches and pains that are now unrelated to a low ferritin. But I never experienced this prior to my anemia, it's just how these things can happen so keep an eye on it. For me I had a hard time just getting out of bed to begin with.
    Best of luck to you! FLFLOWERGIRL

    Hi Trixibel

    I am not anaemic but have low ferritin. I sleep a good 8 hours every night only waking once to go to the loo and I wake up yawning! I feel like I haven't been to sleep! I do suffer tiredness through the day usually mid afternoon is worst and I start to flag a bit but I wouldn't say it was excessive tiredness. I think I wake up feeling tired because I am a snorer, lol, and I don't get the best quality sleep because of that!

    My doctor actually asked me if I woke up tired. I told her yes and that I also get so sleepy around 3:00 pm that I can hardly go anymore. She said these are signs of adrenal insufficiency.
